Mosaic brightens up Woodford Green says councillor
The return of a mosaic originally laid in 2003 to Woodford Green puts the seal on improvement works according to a local councillor.
Cllr Jim O’Shea, a Conservative councillor for Monkhams ward, was photographed next to the colourful design in Pankhurst Green, off The Broadway, on Thursday.
The mosaic was restored at the start of the month by Redbridge Council after being removed to accommodate pavement, street lighting and landscaping works in The Broadway.
Cllr O’Shea said: “It’s a very attractive mosaic.
“It puts the seal on the works and it really brightens the area up.”

It was originally positioned in a flower bed and had become obscured by foliage, according to a council spokesman.
She said: “The mosaic has been refurbished by the original artist and has now been reinstated so it can be seen and enjoyed by the wider community.”
